Hardware/Software: Two Phiilips 8601’s flashed to Benq 1620’s with v. B7P9 fiirmware, Dell 8400 w/3.0 ghz processor, 2 g ram., RAID 1 250 g harddrives, Windows XP Home Edition, Nero Ultra 6 fully updated.
Using one burner, it takes a little over 6 mins. to backup a movie from the harddrive to a dvd with Nero. Not bad based on what I’ve read here. When using both burners simutlaneously, however, completion time zooms to 16 or 17 mins.
Is this length of time normal for this type of operation? It makes sense that more time would be required to burn two discs concurrently – what is the consensus as to the best way to make simultaneous burns occur at a similar speed as when a single disc is burned? Do I have to reconfigure the cabel setup in the tower somehow or is there a software work around that does the same thing?
Drives are both on the same cable, the master is the end, the slave is in the middle. If this question is answered already (how could it not be?!), could some kind soul point me in the right direction? I’ve done extensive searches with no luck.
Thanks for your help and kindness.
